An adorable, mini sized Amanda Hat for the treasured baby in your life!
This little hat is super soft and cozy. The Baby Amanda Hat is knit using a very soft wool yarn and smaller needles - and can be machine washed if you use a superwash merino yarn. This baby hat and the original Amanda Hat would make a wonderful gift for a mom and baby.
